The influence of equipment
can also be a pain in the influence of the money you spend on them
lets be honest. the equipments are not that cheap. i mean there are some cheap things but the best are always expensive. its a pity because those things might be an obstacle to some people achieve some development. others try with the ''cheap'' way and get amazing results.
I've my kit lens, nothing else, plus a macro add-on, which makes fake macros... I'm happy with it, and till now it had never disappointed me but the truth is if i used a real macro lens maybe the things would be different.
at last but not the least, even not having all those gadgets, lens and stuff that makes the world, I try to make the world and my world with the small things i could do...maybe some of them are not big things, but they mean the world to me. that's what photography must mean to everyone...mean the world.
